Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam will reportedly demand around €70m for the transfer of exciting winger Antony. This is according to the report from media outlet SI which stated that the Ajax Amsterdam winger is attracting the interest of several clubs on the European football scene including Manchester United and Manchester City.
22-year-old Antony has grown to become one of the most exciting attacking midfielders in European football since moving to Ajax Amsterdam in February 2020. He started his career at Sao Paulo in his native Brazil and he’s a regular for the Selecao. The Ajax winger played his part as five-time world champions secured their place in the Qatar 2022 FIFA World Cup tournament later this year by winning the South American region as far as the qualifiers for the World Cup tournament are concerned. Antony has two goals and one assist in nine games for Brazil in the World Cup 2022 qualifiers. His second goal for Brazil came in the win over Paraguay in February. Apart from Antony and Brazil, Uruguay, Ecuador and Argentina are also going to the World Cup in Qatar, while Peru could still join them to make it five South American teams if they are able to navigate the inter-confederation playoffs. It must be pointed out that Antony and Brazil have one game left in the qualifiers and that’s the abandoned home clash with arch rivals Argentina.
Antony has been one of the most consistent performers over the course of the last one year. He has 12 goals and eight assists for Ajax Amsterdam in all competitions this season. His form has not gone unnoticed amongst the big teams in Europe.
